Happy NEW Year !!!

Chinese New Year that is !!! As we leave the year of the Tiger (2010) and enter the year of the Rabbit , we reflect on what a great year it was. Lia is a TIGER !! Through and Through....
THE TIGER CHILD

A Tiger child could be a bundle of joy .  A little live wire who dashes about sparkling with activity, he will throw himself into the thick of things. Even a very quiet one will know exactly where the action is and make a bee line for it.

He is a charming, bright and self-confident chatterbox, and there will be no holding him back. His insatiable curiosity and inquisitiveness will lead him to pounce at anything that moves, and he will get into all sorts of predicaments. Hyperactive and high strung, he likes romping, screaming and rough play.

Like the Dragon, he may also bully those less aggressive into submission. But people will also be naturally drawn to him by his warm, affectionate and gregarious character.

The Tiger child will express his feelings outright. You will have to put up with his strong opinions on how things should be run and he will air his views without hesitation. He doesn't like anyone to keep secrets from him and he himself is poor at keeping them.

Since he does not bottle up his emotions, you will know immediately when something is troubling him. Just be sure he is given enough outlets to release his pent-up
energy.

If the Tiger's assertiveness is unchecked, he could dominate his parents completely and turn into a dreadful brat. He should be taught to hold his temperamental character in check early, as well as to listen to reason and understand the values of compromise. But the little rebel won't just take your word for it. He won't be himself if he does not keep testing the boundaries and limits set for him. It will be no mean task making him toe the line. But the earlier he realizes who is boss, the better for him and everyone else around.

However, if he is given the proper stimuli of discipline, coupled with love, warmth and loads of understanding, no other child will respond as spontaneously as the lovable little Tiger. Life may not always run smoothly with him around, but then it would be all too empty without him. Having a Tiger child will be a reward in itself.
We cant wait to see what 2011 brings !!
